Demo cancelled due to inclement weather!
The demonstrators for the February demo are Joe Brown and William "Bud" Thorpe.
The meeting will be held in the Guild Hall, First Congregational Church (middle side door), Sanborn Street, Reading, Wednesday February 14th, 2007 at 7:30 p.m.
"Digital Photography and the Power of Photoshop" is a joint production of Joe Brown and William "Bud" Thorpe. This demonstration will include a quick photo shoot, a small seminar on Photoshop, and an immediate printing session using some of the latest and greatest digital photo equipment and showing how it can be adapted to whatever equipment you own, for, as you know, it is not the equipment, it is the person using it that "makes" the photo.
This promises to be a very interesting and entertaining evening. All are welcome. Light refreshments will be served.
Bud Thorpe currently resides in Amherst, NH, and has been a photographer for most of his adult life. One of Bud's passions - teaching photography - manifests itself as New England Digital Photography Workshops (http://www.nedpw.com/), where he teaches a variety of classes on photography, lighting, and Photoshop. He is an animated teacher, and his style of teaching makes for an enjoyable, fun-filled class.
Joe Brown is currently a photographer for the Reading Daily Times Chronicle and Woburn Daily Times chain of newspapers. He has been with the papers for the past 18 years and has watched the newspaper industry change from the old days of black-and-white film and darkrooms to the newest digital applications and cameras. Brown's freelance work includes the Boston Herald newspaper, the Associated Press, Firehouse Magazine, and numerous commercial clients all over Massachusetts and Southern New Hampshire. Joe also teaches classes as an adjunct of NEDPW.com and includes one-on-one tutoring on sports photography, digital technology and online photo sales. His web presence, http://www.joebrownphotos.com, is a showcase of his work and a sales portal which has a large following in the local area. Joe is a native of Woburn and a member of the Woburn Guild of Artists, having won numerous ribbons in their competitions.
